What Couples Say
“We chose this location for our wedding, it was love at first sight! Covid had us postpone everything for a year (there has always been an extreme understanding for date changes) and I can say that I never thought of changing venue, and even more so I can confirm after having had it! It was a wonderful 3 days of vacation for us and for all our guests. The day was fantastic as I had imagined! They pampered us with great professionalism. Exceptional staff and service. Director Veronica was excellent flower wedding as well as the maitre Giuseppe and all the staff of the Fagiano catering led by Mr. Carlo ! We can’t wait to find another opportunity to celebrate with you but also to spend a few days of total relaxation and enjoy such a lovely place!
Thank you with all my heart.”

“We held our wedding at Masseria Don Luigi booking out the entire Masseria for 3 days….we could not have selected a better venue! The attention to detail at the venue was exceptional and the service of all the staff exceeded our expectations. Each and every one of our guests spoke highly of the venue and would all return to Masseria Don Luigi when returning to Puglia. With regards to our wedding we were well looked after by Giacomo (the manager) and staff went out of their way to ensure everything was in place for our special day. Even the day after their staff went above and beyond to make sure we had an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!!!”
